Rights and Responsibilities
A guide for patients, carers and families
Everyone seeking or receiving healthcare in Australia has certain rights and responsibilities. They include the right to access, safety, respect, communication, participation, privacy and to comment on their care.
Here you will find information on how these rights are achieved in the NSW public health system and the responsibilities that come with them.
Everyone has an important role to play in achieving healthcare rights and contributing to safe, high quality care.
Genuine partnerships between those receiving care and those providing it lead to the best possible outcomes.
